Jersey Boys was last seen at the Playhouse in 2019 (★★★★☆ Jersey royal). It tells the story of Frankie Castelluccio – rechristened to Valli for marquee reasons – Bob Gaudio, Tommy DeVito and Nick Massi over four seasons. Giving each a chance to tell their side of what happened.

“They were just four guys from New Jersey, until they sang their very first note. They had a sound nobody had ever heard – and the radio just couldn’t get enough.  But while their harmonies were perfect on stage, off stage it was a very different story…”

The show uses the band’s hit songs – Sherry, Big Girls Don’t Cry, Oh What A Night, Walk Like A Man, Can’t Take My Eyes Off You, Working My Way Back To You and the rest – to tell that story in what is a superior jukebox musical. Albeit one with authentic New Jersey language which may not be suitable for younger audiences.

Jersey Boys is currently at the Glasgow King’s (to Saturday 7 May Book here). Following its Edinburgh dates it will continue to His Majesty’s Theatre in Aberdeen, from Tue  7 – Sat 11 February 2023.

The show is also resident at the Trafalgar Theatre in London where it is currently booking through to October this year.
